Since clay is a natural material extracted from the Earth, it carries the energy of the Earth. Some people believe that by touching clay products, a person can get a charge of the positive energy of nature, and feel calmer and more harmonious.
Features of Kosiv ceramics
These ceramics are distinguished by double kiln firing and patterns in exclusively traditional colors: yellow, green, brown. The motives of the drawings are usually inspired by the local nature (mountains, forests, waterfalls) and elements of everyday life.
The drawings are made in the style of engraving, and therefore they turn out to be voluminous. Kosiv ceramics often show patterns in the shape of triangles, which symbolize the rich coniferous forest, mountains, peaks, and roofs of houses.
History of Kosiv ceramics
It got its name from the city of Kosiv, which is the center of folk art in Hutsulshchyna. The outskirts of Kosovo are rich in clay deposits. Pottery has been developing here since the 15th century and reached its peak in the 18-19th century. Kosiv ceramics were popular not only in the Hutsul region but also in Romania and Hungary. In 2019, Kosovo ceramics was inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
